Still in November, all managed to Patrik Laineelta . He scored 12 match 18 goals and found that the puck will go in almost every time to finish the place as a place.
December was Laine's standards, already sluggish, when a 15-match account for only 7 (3+4) power points. Plus/minus-the number was -5.
January has been Laineelta miserable, when 11 match goals is born with only one and power points three. Plus/minus is -4.
Tuesday's match in Boston Bruinsia against the Jets head coach Paul Maurice put the Finnish star to the doghouse and give this ice season with just under 11 minutes. It is one of injury due to unfinished matches with the exception of a small rink time, which Laine has received in one game the entire NHL in his career.the core of the Problem
Laine's difficulties culminate in the weak sentterien Bryan Little , owner of reel loss, and sluggish in movement, a clear frustration as well as the two main game guy, or the comforter, Dustin Byfuglienin striker Nikolaj Ehlersin absence.
Laine has played almost his whole career Little alongside. Laine has made 105 goals, of which Little is given to only 11 first assists. Little is not the game factor, which is able to feed the puck Laineelle attack in the area. Most often, the Little throw in of the central region of the puck in the opponents end, and then Laine's body language clearly brings out the frustration.
Laine paints Byfuglien has been on the mound 31 times, Ehlers 21 times. Both have been out for some time injured.No changes
sports net reporter Sean Reynolds recall that Maurice hasn't tried to get the Billows back to their level fielded by him better to chain with friends, on the contrary.
– Most of the time Maurice reduce Laine the ice season, or drop to the lower chain, Reynolds said.
Laine has reached the number one chain of Mark Scheifelen and Blake Wheeler beside just numbers. Many in the rest of the NHL follow in Laine's like the paint cannon would be the best game factors alongside, but not Maurice's Jet.
Reynolds understood this.
– Good not worth the mess, and the Jets ' first chain (on the other side Kyle Connor ) is continuously appeared as one of the best combinations in the NHL. The Jets have been successful without Laine peak power too and they don't want to mix a winning system just to cheer the young Finnish score. Laine has to find his way out of the alavirettä, Reynolds said.Spectate?
Winnipeg Sun reporter Ted Wyman to remind, that Laine is this season still a 41 goal pace, and that he has made a short career with 105 goals.
– the NHL's history, there are not many players who have been able to the same the first three during the season, Wyman said.
after That, when Laine came in the autumn of 2016 NHL, Washington Capitals, Alex Ovetshkin has made more goals than Laine.
deep wave in it is still having trouble with the puck in your area, he loses the puck on the ground in every region and his confidence is worse than ever in the NHL in his career, Wyman wrote.
Wyman suggested to hard solution.
– Patrik Laine needs the shock of the evening press in the stadium and the chance to see the game from a different perspective could be the key. The Jets have a good enough team to win, although Laine and the second chain won't work. But at some point the situation has to change, Wyman said.
Also Wyman knows that Littlestä'm Laine and the second chain to be a center.
– player trade before the 25. February could bring a result. Jets would want a repeat of last spring trick and get experienced, the game to center field in Laine's alongside, Wyman wrote.
Wyman remind you, however, that Laine is the first self-help themselves.
He ought to move faster, to make faster solutions, and stop the hack the opponent's defense in the middle. It does not work.high standards
Almost all the other 20-year-old NHL players Laine's achievements were excellent, but Laine at the bar is almost in the clouds.
Laine was before last night's games two weak months, despite the goal scoring still # 16, and just four goals away from fifth place.
the dominance of the goal 11 times successful Billows more were done with just the Boston Bruins, David Pastrnak (14) and Tampa Bay light ning Brayden Point (13).
Laine is still the Jets best scorer Scheifelen with. The winning goal, and he has the third most. 25 goals 50 match is a tough accomplishment, but the plus/minus figure -13 is not a source of pride.
